This dry dog food is made by freeze-drying, not high-temperature heating, which means it has none of the carcinogens found in common dog food kibble. Excellent formula for dogs of any age who need to maintain a healthy weight.
Why We Recommend This Brand
“What should I feed my dog with cancer” is the number one asked question we get at DogCancerBlog.com. The answer is not simple, just like cancer and dogs are not simple. There is no “magical food” that will kill cancer. However, there ARE foods that will fight cancer and support the body. The best diet is a homecooked diet. But if you need to use commercial dog food as part of all of your dog’s cancer diet, using food from Orijen is a good choice.
That’s because this company uses “whole prey” ingredients that are biologically appropriate. What does that mean? They include organ meats, cartilage, and bone in addition to muscle meat — just like your dog would eat in the wild. Based in Kentucky, when they use fruits and veggies, they come from local farms. This is an amazing company.
Use as a base to the home-cooked Dog Cancer Diet Dr. Dressler recommends in The Dog Cancer Survival Guide, or use as the standalone meal.
Orijen has lots of options for you. None of them are completely in alignment with Dr. Dressler’s anti-cancer diet, because his diet is not a diet a healthy dog would need. However, you can trust this brand’s quality and cleanliness and integrity.
